OMG this place is fabulous. We were seated downstairs where the old-school bowling is. Old school meaning hand scoring. The atmosphere was that of a college hang out and the food was amazing. Prices were very reasonable. If you are someone using a wheelchair, I...More

Fabulous lunch. We tried the Juicy Nookie, fries with beer cheese dip, and cheese curds. Worth the wait and drive.

Try the Juicy Lucy burger. This place is quaint and popular. There is a bowling alley located under the restaurant. They have a full service bar and tap beer. The milkshakes and fries are a wonderful compliment to all their meals

We live less than a mile from "The Nook," and we've been upwards of 100 times. Nice place in a nice neighborhood. Many of we locals will tell you this is the best burger joint in MSP.

Asked Siri to find me a lunch place in St. Paul and this was suggested. Probably the best burger I've had anywhere. Specialty is stuffed burgers.

If you want dinner here at dinner time you will probably wait-but do it anyway! It is so good! My dad is a hamburger snob-hates going out for burgers when he believes his are always better. This is the one place that shut him up...More

Ok, so the place is a bit small, and often crowded, ok, and sometimes a bit noisy...but it is all worth it because the burgers are so good. It is worth the wait, if you can handle the stairs, you can sometimes get into the...More

If you are in the mood for a good burger this is the spot! It's usually busy so come early and if the street level is full there's always the basement. Same great food but few know they can dine down there too. Order the...More
